SPILL festival: Roll on the floor, it’s day four!

It’s the penultimate day of SPILL and there’s so much to see. Our arts editor, Emily Godden, has these suggestions for you

Look out for Portable-Objective-White-Space by artist Kate Mahoney who creates interventions in different locations across the festival. You never know where she may pop up with her portable white-space – we’ve already seen her outside the Police Station and around Ipswich Art School Gallery. Keep em’ peeled people of Ipswich.

Today we allow mechanisation to absorb us; take a visit to the Think Tank between 12:30 and 6.00pm where you can see artist Sarah-Jane Norman hand-engraving bones – simply beautiful work, which needs to be seen. And pop around the corner to Ipswich Art School Gallery to see Unbound, a pop-up book shop from the Live Art Development Agency – it’s unlikely you’ll see these books sitting on the shelves of Waterstones as LADA specialise in hard-to-find artist’s publications.

Rounding off the SPILL Salons is number 3 – On Death and Dying. The title says it all really.  Chaired by Hugh Whittall, Director of the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, and including artist Jo Bannon and End of Life Care Educator Martin Russell from St Elizabeth Hospice, Ipswich, you’ll be landing feet first into a Saturday packed with performance and intrigue. Do we need to mention that the salon is FREE? Same time and place: 11.00-12.30pm at Ipswich Art School Gallery.

Take a chance, surrender to SPILL.
